Sergio Mendes – Timeless (Audiophile Red Vinyl 2LP)
Half-Speed Mastered by Stan Ricker!
Featured in Michael Fremer’s Heavy Rotation in the August 2009 Issue of Stereophile!
Timeless is the magnificent new album by the legendary Sergio Mendes. Produced by and featuring Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas, this album is a wholly original synthesis of music from the man who – 40 years ago – brought Brazil 66 and “Mas Que Nada” to the world. Timeless beautifully blends the urban culture of Brazil, samba and bossa nova with the urban culture of America, hip hop and rap, the results of which are truly spectacular.
